Microblog Crawler v1.0 Released

Posted on Sat, 29 Nov 2014 at 08:35 PM

Today, I'm proud to announce that version 1.0 of my Microblog/RSS feed crawler is released. It's up on GitHub for all to see and installation is as easy as:

pip install microblogcrawler

From the README:

[The MicroblogCrawler is a] basic feed crawler/parser for traversing microblog and RSS feeds.

Some quick notes about the project:

  • It's written in Python.
  • It's my first project to be officially released on PyPi
  • This crawler is actually an offshoot project from my Microblogger project.
  • The crawler's API is modeled after the Tweepy StreamListener API.
  • The crawler is 241 lines long, and a significant portion of those line are documentation (~35%).

If this project interests you, please check it out. I'd love feedback on the design and ideas for improvements!
